Great Western 4800

This has been a slow burn project and there's still quite a bit to do.  Last night saw one side of pressfix lettering go on along with the Narrow Planet bespoke number plate. This is a pretty much stripped down basic 48XX with everything taken off, and when put alongside the standard Airfix/Hornby model it looks startling different without the top feed/whistle cover/steps/wiring. This is though a reasonably cheap first go at a conversion. You can get the bodies separately, but there are enough non-runners knocking about (as this one was) that you could do the work and then upgrade with a new Chinese chassis unit afterwards.
